Is there a "utility" for uninstalling Microsoft Edge?
I could have sworn I had gotten rid of it in previous updates but the 1803 Newest Update just dumps it back in the Windows 10 O/S during it's update. Is there a "Utility" for finding this devil and uninstalling it?

Is there is a reason why you wanna uninstall it? (as opposed to simply not using it).

I really am sick of Microsofts SHOVELWARE! The less of their code I have on my machine(s) the better!

Calling Edge shovelware is taking it a step too far I believe. I use Edge from time to time, and it's definitely got better over the past couple of years (although I agree, it has some major flaws).

Anyway, Edge is just a successor to Internet Explorer. Surely you won't describe IE as shovelware?

Yes, I was trying to keep it from using system resources and also I do not trust Microsoft!
I can understand not having unnecessary bytes on your hard drive but if you are running Windows on your machine I doubt having Edge would be more of a backdoor or anything like that.

P.S you shouldn't trust any corporation, they aren't your friends

Time to learn linux. I too am seriously considering it.
Yup, I seriously need to open my Kali Linux setup. I set it up and it's all ready to go all I need to do is get off my arse and learn it! Any recomendations on Learning Source Materials?
